Floridian, what is your name? Some people call you Celia, and others Cecile, and I'm confused and don't know what to call you!

Her name is Cecile but since most people don't know how to pronounce it (I had to ask), she goes by Celia. She answers to both and I call her both. :P

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Ah, I see, it's a matter of, "I don't care what you call me, as long as you call me!". Thanks for clearing this up for me, though. I like the name Cecile (and yes, I certainly know how to pronounce it ;)).

DISASTER

OMG - - first I lifted all the color (dang, hard to do this and not get it all over your head), and it was bright golden whitish/orange....and then....put on medium brown with dark ash blonde....OMG - - now it is

GREEN

:ph34r::o:ph34r::o:ph34r::o

:lol::lol: (I shouldn't laugh :unsure: )

SUSAN!!! NEVER put brown on bleached hair!-As you found out it will go GREEN

(you were supposed to just put Ash Blonde on top of the bleach)

Damn-this cyber hairdressing definitely ain't working out :rolleyes:

the only thing I've heard about hair color is that the blacks and browns cause bladder cancer...heard this from my friend's mom, a breast cancer survivor...dont' know if this is true or not.

I'll find out for you, lol...been dying my dark brown for years now...

And, re the rashes and whatnot...my hairdresser DOES have some clients who are allergic to the dyes, so she has to kind of rotate them (the dyes, not the clients, lol). I've heard that before from friends too. I don't know if I am or not (so hard to tell), but I can't give up my dye...no no no! No gray for me! :lol:

Ursula....I am SO glad that at least my hair debacle was able to give you a good laugh.... :lol: it is pretty funny....and pretty stupid of me.... :huh:

Nikki - - oh dear - - I didn't know about the brown turning the hair green... :o:ph34r::lol: don't try this at home, folks....

I think I"ll wear a visor today until my appt. The "highlights" are in front mainly, so this should suffice...

I got nothin' else....trying to make jewelry and finding it difficult. Donna - - wish we could have a jewelry-making party together!

Patti - - your Allo cat is SO CUTE!!! :)

Does anybody know what chemicals are in hair dye? (I don't :unsure: ) That green makes me wonder if there's some kind of heavy metal action going on (no, I don't mean the music)? I remember reading a long time ago that beauticians have a very high miscarriage rate, but that was before the days before everybody wore latex gloves for everything. Hmmm...I just can't help wondering about all these chemicals we women are expected to ingest through our skins--hair dye, makeup, hormones, etc.

Like panty hose and high heels (which I am far too clumsy to wear), I bet they were all invented by MEN . :ph34r:

It was an honest mistake, er I saw the thread title and I thought it was like um, er I thought it was like a room with like "Forty-something" women in it (How many, well they're not quite sure, looks like forty-something). I thought to myself, sounds like a good place to be? :huh:

I was going to dispense advice on hair, but I know you're not a fan of the comb-over or mullets, so my bag is empty :(

bead store....come on girls, have I taught you nothign?? those are for EMERGENCIES only...they have a four- to eight-time markup....you can get MOUNTAINS of pearl strands for as little as $3 or even $! (really crappy ones) at gem and bead shows...and they sell them for $15 or $20 at the bead stores - - talk about HERESY!!! And there are a couple of great catalogs that are almost wholesale, also ebay is wonderful for gemstones and findings (clasps, etc)....you must NEVER shop at a bead store! :o I also have lots of great websites if anyone (Donna?) needs materials...some great ebay sellers...and get this - was watching an item on ebay, some onyx nuggets, they sold for $32. What people don't know is that in that same seller's REGULAR store, those same nuggets are selling for $16 a strand, so I got two for the price of one - but bidders don't know that they have a store! crazy.....

one more hour until my hair is fixed!

You're all full of talk aren't you? .... and how many nuggets are left????? B) I live downtown in this small town (same block as the bakery LOL, and walking distance from Dominos) ... the bead store is two minutes away, walking .... you would definately commit heresy! :lol: Plus, I've never been in there ....

Good luck at the salon, Susan!

Yes, that would be fine :lol::lol: ... I'd stay away from bleach though ... very hard to grow out while you're bleaching, trust me! From what my stylist tells me, color won't lift color, but color will lift natural color (if I understand correctly). I feel like it's been FOREVER to grow mine out. It seems stuck at this length.
